Usage notes[edit]

  • To talk about someone's age, in Spanish the construction is "tener X años" (literally, have X years). So, "I'm 18 (years old)" would be "tengo 18 años". Similarly, "how are old are you?" would be "¿cuántos años tienes?" (literally, "how many years do you have?")
  • Do not confuse with ano, which means "anus".
